Woodburn, 17, revives Wales WC bid

On Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 21:45, Cardiff at the Cardiff City Stadium will host a qualifying round match for the World Cup in Russian Federation in 2018, which will meet the national teams of Wales and Austria.

The 17-year-old came on as a substitute against Austria to get his first global cap and didn't take long to make his mark.

The win, only Wales' second of the campaign, sees Chris Coleman's men narrow the gap between themselves and second placed Ireland, who have 13 points while Wales have 11 points.


"The ball just came out of the air and I just tried to shoot it as quickly as I could", Woodburn told Sky Sports, after becoming Wales' second-youngest goalscorer in history at 17 years and 322 days, behind only Bale.

The Liverpool forward was introduced as a substitute just five minutes before he picked up a loose header 20 yards from the Austria goal to curl an effort into the bottom corner and send the Wales fans into delirium.

"It was just a dream come true", said Woodburn, who has been part of Chris Coleman's senior squads since March but had to wait to win his first cap.


"Jurgen Klopp (the Liverpool manager) has been absolutely fantastic with him (telling him) "not too much too soon", "be patient and your time will come and then you have to take your chance".

'The manager said to me before I went on to enjoy myself and help the team as best as I could, and hopefully I did that.

Wales face a tough away trip against Moldova on Tuesday in which three points once again will be vital for their qualification hopes. Now we go to Moldova and hopefully carry on'.


After being outplayed in the first half, the 2016 Euro semi-finalists were much improved in the second-half. "I definitely won't sleep tonight, that's one thing".
